I love this shampoo! It gives a tingling feeling and leaves your scalp feeling fresh and clean! I truly believe it’s worth the price. All of my family uses it! However, I can’t use it regularly due to my super dry scalp. It doesn’t maintain my scalp from flaking and if my scalp is at its driest I’ll end up with cuts on my scalp and this shampoo with burn the heck out of it. If you don’t suffer from that problem than I would 100% suggest trying it!

This product is awesome! I went to the salon my hairdresser used it to shampoo my hair and I fell in love with it! It makes my hair feel and smell good for a long time! When using this shampoo, the mint in it makes my head tingle and it feels very refreshing especially when I have a headache! Unfortunately, this shanties a bit pricey so I don’t like to buy it too often, but for someone who does not mind spending the extra money for it, I would definitely recommend it!

I love the scent and how clean my hair feels after using the Tea Tree thickening shampoo. I haven't seen a difference in the thickness of my hair or the number of hairs on my scalp. It gives a nice tingle and it suds beautifully, but it is on the expensive side.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo has been a favorite of mine for many years.  When I started losing my hair, I panicked and starting using Rogaine and Nioxin shampoo, but the Nioxin dried my scalp out and made it unbearably itchy.  I went back to my fave - Paul Mitchell Tea Tree - and the tingling sensation from the tea tree oil and peppermint makes my scalp feel invigorated and alive.  It leaves your hair smelling great too!

Amazing for a deep, clarifying clean! I use this about once a month to strip out any build up from other hair products I’ve used. It will strip hair color though, so if that’s a concern, you will want to skip this. However, I’ve also used this to fade my hair to a pastel color and it’s turned out beautifully. The smell is VERY STRONG and does linger. Your scalp will feel amazing and tingly so it’s worth it!

This shampoo is great to deep clean your scalp. With the pleasant smell of peppermint it also gives you that refreshing feeling on your scalp. This shampoo can be used daily. Out if any cooling/ deep cleaning shampoo this is my favorite! This shampoo also works really good to strip unwanted color out of your hair! This shampoo can be used by any adult. My bf and I both use it!

I live in a rather dry state, and my hair definitely feels the lack of moisture. I was curious about using tree oil in its regular form but didnt know how to use it correctly. This is the best invention ever. After just a few washes, my color treated hair became soft and luscious. Seriously, get this and use it. It's worth the pricetag and the trip to Ulta.

This shampoo is really great for dry scalp. I color my hair and use heat products. I also get very dry skin in the winter and it irritates my scalp. This shampoo really helps to soothe that irritation. The smell is a little strong but not off putting. Ulta usually has great deals on shampoo and this is one of them. Check it out!

I really like how cleansing this shampoo is as well as the invigorating smell you get that is almost spa like and very stress relieving. However, it has really dried my hair out which created more frizz and unruly tangles. I do still like it but would make just use the shampoo coupled with a more moisturizing conditioner

I absolutely love this product. I love how it tingles on my scalp. It has a nice minty smell. I have tried the OGX® Teatree Mint Shampoo version and it tangled my hair really badly. Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo does not do this to my hair. I only need this in the winter when the air is dry. I will buy every winter to help dry scalp.

Where can you buy this? Does it smell like tea tree oil? Is it supposed to be used daily?

My hair is naturally oily, so I am looking for a product that cuts that down. Will this shampoo cut that down?

Does this shampoo help with dry, flaky scalp? And if so, how often would you recommend using it? Daily? Or maybe weekly along with my other shampoo and conditioner.
